Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.

Join us in our commitment to turn childhood dreams into reality by supporting THON. This year, I am taking action by uniting with 16,500 student volunteers and over 25,000 alumni supporters in the fight against childhood cancer. Our year-long efforts culminate in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon each February to celebrate our survivors, remember those we’ve lost, and take a stand--all in hopes of one day dancing in celebration of a cure.

Throughout the year, I will be fundraising to benefit THON in an effort to provide outstanding financial and emotional support and spread THON’s mission world-wide. It is my hope that one day, every child will have the opportunity to live out their dreams. 

This year is particularly special to me as I am a volunteer within the Dancer Relations Committee for THON 2020. This means I will be on the floor approximately half of the 46 hours THON weekend helping dancers overcome their challenges both physically and mentally. I have been a part of regular meetings and fundraisers since October and as a result I am more invested in this year's THON than ever before. 

This year, with our new partners Pi Beta Phi, we have set a goal to raise $100,000 by THON weekend. As of February 1 Sig Ep alone has raised $30,000, already surpassing last year's total. The month leading up to THON sees the highest concentration of donations of the whole year and we would love to make a great final push. 

Since 1977, THON has raised over $157 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Children’s Hospital, providing comprehensive care for 4,000 families and fund critical research to take our fight beyond central Pennsylvania and spread hope around the world. We work year-round to provide both financial and emotional support for our families, ensuring that they never have to face cancer alone. 

I truly appreciate any support you provide, either by making a donation or by sharing my page on social media to spread THON’s mission.
